Obama endorsed by food/commercial workers union

Larry Eiche, The Philadelphia Inquirer

As the Pennsylvania primary campaign continues, area labor unions are making their endorsements. And the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1776 has weighed in on the side of Barack Obama.

Wendell W. Young IV, the local’s president, said that his executive board decided that Obama was “the best candidate to unite our country.” The local represents 23,000 workers in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New York, including workers in many supermarkets and in Pennsylvania’s liquor stores.
